Word scramble

Wednesday, December 14th, 2005

So tonight Canem is playing some computer game and she comes downstairs with a piece of paper with the following letters written on it “O W B L E.” It’s a word scramble and she’s stumped. So she asks Canca what word those letters could make. The only clue she has is that it’s a body part. Canca looks at the paper for a moment and says, “Well, I think the word is ‘bowel’.” Canem looks confused and Canca explains tactfully what the bowel is for and so Canem runs upstairs to try the word in her computer game. A few minutes later she calls down, “Mom, how do you spell ‘elbow’?”

Never realized elbow and bowel use the same letters.

Haunted Christmas Bear – Part 2

Monday, December 12th, 2005

Continuing from an earlier post:

Haunted Christmas Bear wouldn’t shut up today. He was very haunted today. He even went off when I wasn’t in my office. When I came up to my office some of the people I work with were staring into my office door as he played his little song. They were wondering what the deal was with Haunted Christmas Bear. I explained to them that this wasn’t just a Christmas Bear, it was Haunted Christmas Bear and that he plays the music all on his own. They laughed but it was a patronizing laugh. They think I’m crazy. I’m not… it’s just Haunted Christmas Bear.

Today I drove all over the place looking for a camcorder. Those suckers are expensive. When I went into one of the local electrnics store the guy there tried to sell me on a camera. I was hesitant and he told me to go look elsewhere and then come back. I then remembered this was the same guy that helped me buy a computer a few months ago. He did the exact same thing, sold me on a computer, I was hesitant, he told me to look in other stores and then come back. However, I found it for a better price elsewhere and never came back.

That guy needs a new shtick.

Leaping Lords

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

Sometimes I get these strange urges… Yesterday I went to this conference and I was on the second floor. There is this big opening on the second floor sticking up through the opening from the first floor is a gigantic Christmas Tree. As I walked by, I had the urge to leap from the railing around the Christmas tree and grab onto the top of the tree just to see what would happen. I would have been one of those leaping lords from the song. However, I’m not a lord and I didn’t leap so I was neither. Anyway, I’m sure nothing good would have come of it.

Haunted Christmas Bear

Monday, December 5th, 2005

I have a haunted Christmas bear. Haunted Christmas Bear is quiet all year and then come late November he spontaneously goes off and plays a tinny version of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Normally to get Haunted Christmas Bear to play his song you have to squeeze his paw. But somehow, even when he’s put away in the drawer, Haunted Christmas Bear knows that its time to start playing his Christmas songs.

Haunted Christmas Bear frightens me.

So I went in my office the other day and there was my “Ped.” Not sure why they call them “Peds” but its basically a set of drawers that I can lock. It has wheels. It’s fun. Anyway, I came into my office and the drawer is locked and if you can believe this I tried to unlock it by pushing the button on my car keychain. That’s a sure fire sign that I’ve lost it.

Noocr tells me that car keychain thing is called a “fob” which to me is stranger than “Ped”.
